Lito Banayo, political adviser of Rodrigo Duterte, sees the Davao City mayor eclipsing the total votes Noynoy Aquino received when he won the presidency in the 2010 elections.

Aquino garnered 15,208,678 million votes while Joseph Estrada was a distant second with 9,487,837 votes.

“Looking at the exit polls and looking at the field reports that we are getting, it would seem that mayor Duterte will parallel if not surpass the victory of President Aquino in 2010,” Banayo said during a PDP-Laban press briefing Monday at the Duterte-Cayetano headquarters at Linden Suites in Pasig City.


Banayo, who was part of Aquino’s campaign during that time, sees a landslide victory and not even combining the total number of votes of the second and third-running candidates would match up to Duterte’s output.

“It would seem in fact that if you add up the votes of No. 2 and No. 3 they will not even equal the number of votes that mayor Duterte will have at the end.”

As of 8:30 p.m., Duterte has run away from the pack with 11,084,850 to lead the race with Grace Poe a far second with 6,303,528 votes and Mar Roxas in third with 6,177,430 based on the partial and unofficial results from the Comelec mirror server with 52.8% of votes counted.
